The CPCI 5th Edition Precast Concrete Design Manual is the ultimate publication covering the design, manufacture and installation of precast reinforced and prestressed concrete. It is an essential resource for every precast concrete project.
CPCI Design Manual Webinar Series CPCI launched its first ever webinar series to present each chapter of the CPCI Fifth Edition Design Manual. The webinars were presented by the Chapter Editors to CPCI members, engineers, owners/developers, designers and AEC professionals, from May to October, 2018, and are still available for viewing.
CHAPTER 3 - DESIGN OF ELEMENTSThe chapter on element design has required revisions due to changes in A23.3 and NBCC 2015. Sections dealing with slabs, hollowcore and both prestressed and non-prestressed beams have been examined to include recent revisions in A23.3. A new example on partial prestressing has been added, and all examples dealing with shear and torsion have been evaluated in the context of the new A23.3 code. Fourth edition errata have been included in this edition, and design examples, graphs and figures have been updated throughout.
CHAPTER 4 - DESIGN OF CONNECTIONSDesign examples and calculations have been updated throughout. The example design of the cazaly hanger has been extensively updated from the last edition. Two new design examples are included; A design example for the baseplate and anchor bolt sizing of a column connection has been added; A design example for strength analysis of a weld group has also been added.
CHAPTER 5 - ARCHITECTURAL PRECAST CONCRETEThe design of architectural precast concrete has been updated to reflect current industry practices. Important new publication references include CPCI Architectural Precast Concrete Walls: Best Practice Guide (2017) and two new precast building envelope guides by RDH Building Science Inc., Maintenance and Inspection Manual for Precast Concrete Building Enclosures (2016), and Meeting and Exceeding Building Code Thermal Performance Requirements (2017).
Very few studies have investigated the effect of CAC as the aluminum-rich material on the alkali activator materials. Arbi et al.  investigated the blast furnace slag and natural rock mixed with CAC. The results showed that the former system obtained C-(A)-S-H gel and sulfoaluminate in the medium alkaline medium. Vafaei and Allahverdi  studied the influence of CAC on natural pozzolan. They found that CAC increased the aluminum content of the binder and promoted the geopolymerization to form more aluminosilicate gels. Reig et al.  explored the effect of red clay brick waste with CAC. The results identified that CAC accelerated the activation process of red bricks and the compressive strength achieved 50 MPa. Tao et al.  explored the mechanical properties of fly ash geopolymer concrete (FAGC) with CAC. The results identified that the optimal replacement rate of CAC is 10% on the compressive strength of 7 days and 28 days. So far, fly ash geopolymer concrete as the most widely explored alkali-activated material, there are not enough studies on the properties of FAGC combined with CAC under the high temperature curing condition.
Reference to the literature , some recommended equations and empirical equations can be used to predict the splitting tensile strength from compressive strength of FAGC. The empirical equations recommended in codes of practice were used to predict splitting tensile strength. For instance, American concrete institute (ACI) Building Code 318  and Ding et al.  can be used to predict the splitting tensile strength, which is expressed by Equations (1) and (2).
Generally, the elastic modulus of concrete is believed to be related to compressive strength. Thus, some empirical equations can be used to predict the elastic modulus from compressive strength. The Equations (3) and (4) proposed by Hardjito et al.  and Lee and Lee  based on test results of geopolymer concrete.

This document has been prepared by the Cement Association ofCanada (CAC) to aid in the design of reinforced concrete buildingstructures. It has been the intent of the CAC to present thisinformation in a manner which will serve as an extension to the CSAGroup standard A23.3-14, Design of concrete structures, and theother documents referenced herein. While every attempt has beenmade to present information that is factual and in a useableformat, none of the references to the CSA Group standard or theNational Building Code of Canada should be construed as anendorsement of the material appearing in the Handbook by theagencies responsible for the referenced material.
Published by the CISC since 1967, the Handbook of Steel Construction is the standard reference for the design and detailing of structural steel in Canada. The 12th Edition has been updated to reflect changes to CSA S16:19, Design of steel structures, and the steel section data. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2020. Member design tables are based on steel grades ASTM A992, A572 Grade 50, A913 Grade 65, A500 Grade C and CSA G40.21-350W.
